DOJ’s False Claims Act Recoveries in Fiscal Years 2020 and 2019

Date: February 01, 2021

Publication: Pratt’s Government Contracting Law Report

The U.S. Department of Justice’s total False Claims Act recoveries in fiscal year 2020 appear lower than the Department’s recoveries in fiscal year 2019, and lower than the average over the past decade. As in most years, recoveries in health care were significantly higher than in contract and grant cases. Although recoveries may be lower in fiscal year 2020, enforcement may rise as new government priorities and oversight entities focus on the pandemic, stimulus funding, and related allegations of fraud. In this article, Joseph R. Berger, Thomas O. Mason, and Sarah M. Hall examine the civil settlements in these two fiscal years, with a focus on the government contract and grant context.
